# /etc/afpovertcp.cfg is used to set the system-wide AFP defaults

# Copyright 1998 Apple Computer, Inc.
#
# If this file exists, TCP/IP will be used as the default transport
# protocol for AFP. Otherwise ATP will be used.
#
# Supported commands are:
#
# quantum [quantum size]
# 16384 is a reasonable value; 4624 is the default.
#
# port [TCP listen port]
# The default is 548.
#
# It is legal for this file to exist and for it to have no contents.

What do you make of this? ATP means AppleTalk Protocol, right?
What happens if I delete this file? Will AppleTalk talk via old-fashioned AppleTalk instead of TCP/IP only?

i tried, all that happened was that the system stopped for a while while starting AppleTalk when starting up. I still coudn't see any AppleTalk servers on the network.
